How Acupuncture Helps with Skin Rejuvenation
Skin is the largest organ in your body, and when something in your life is unbalanced, it can easily become affected. Oriental Medicine is interested primarily in restoring balance to the body by manipulating the flow of chi, or life energy. This is the purpose of needles in acupuncture, and it can be very effective in treating a variety of conditions.
By affecting hormone levels and improving circulation, acupuncture treatments have been shown to be effective in reducing inflammation and autoimmune responses, which are at the root of many skin conditions. Similarly, acupuncture can help to boost collagen production, resulting in firmer and more elastic skin. This makes skin rejuvenation and wrinkle prevention a popular use for acupuncture at our clinic.
In general, acupuncture works best as a preventative therapy and as part of whole-body wellness. Regular sessions will help to reduce your stress levels, providing you with more energy and a better immune system. Coupled with complementary therapies, like herbal supplements, the improvements can be dramatic. When your body is healthy, it will show in your skin.
